Quilt Along Virgin

I am joining my first quilt along!

AMANDA JEAN of Crazy Mom Quilts is starting one I might be able to handle. I have to look at my stash if I can find it and pick out at least 24 1/8s. I'll have two per 12" block and 24 blocks would be for a baby quilt. Or I can make a bigger one. Amanda Jean has done all the math. This is exciting.

Here's a few photos of my sewing stuff and room. See what I need to do
Guess who's got work to do!?

Inch Worm wants to Hear from You!

Jeanette over at Inch Worm Fabrics is hosting a give-away and will 'draw' a winner once 200 quilters have commented. Let's help her get there. I'm having trouble linking to her blog but the address is: http://inchwormfabrics.blogspot./com.

Some of My Views

Good morning. It's almost 10 am and I am still in my dressing gown thoroughly enjoying the morning, listening to Luke Parkin on the piano, drinking coffee and taking photos of my vista. Thought I would share a few with you since quilting doesn't appear to be in my near future. This is the view from my bed - I know! Hard to take eh?
And here is one of the views from my beautiful kitchen!
That's Salt Spring Island across from us.
Sitting on my deck I had company for breakfast. He wanted a quiet moment to himself which hey, we can understand so I left him(?)to dine alone.
That is our neighbors yard he is heading for. Plantings need to be carefully chosen to survive in Crofton.
Here's the last one for today - the mill, ferry from Salt Spring Island unloading and the edge of Crofton's RV Park. Crofton has a deep sea port so we get to watch freighters swing by, tugs towing barges and much more.
Must send this now and get on with my day. Hope yours is the best. hugs.

True Random Number Generator

Min: 1
Max: 301

And 102 is WENDY who asked for: circles, 6 1/4 apple core, 5" squares DIE.
Accuquilt will be sending her a new BABY GO CUTTER AND THE DIES! I can feel her excitement and how great it is to win. CONGRATULATION WENDY!
And I also know how disappointing it is not to win but it is fun for awhile as we think of the possibility and we do know if we don't play we can't win. Thank you everyone. This was a blast and may an ACCUQUILT CUTTER and ALL OF THE DIES be in your future soon.
The sun shines here and it is going to be a great week. Make sure yours is too.

Well this has been fun and I've met some great people. Thank you to all of you who have stayed to 'follow'. Tomorrow morning I will be drawing winner and also getting on with 'the move'. I've had 4 days off from the drudgery of moving and cleaning while my son and his family have visited but they leave today and I need to get back to it. My sewing room is not going to be set up for awhile, so sad and one of the reasons I was reluctant to move. A friend commented on what a great opportunity this to sort and organize and she is right it is so I will soldier on.

For those who have the fortitude to try for another BABY GO Kathy is also giving one away at "Quilting along

the Gorge" and that give away is open until July 8 or 9.

Head on over to Natasha's Blog for a chance to win an awesome Slice Fabrique Cordless Digital Design Cutter give away. I have one of these and you can buy cards with about 20 different shapes on them, AND there are different sizes on each card. Unlike the GO and BABY GO you can only cut 1 at a time but so many choices Good luck!
